    The thing that cheers me up about that series is how all the really exciting people just accidentally fell into it after planning an entirely different life. I still live in hope.

    I think it was Noggin who mentioned these:-

    Could I also say they are good for aerating wine.

    We've been binge watching 'The Moomins' from the 1990s and it's apparently the ideal mix of shape and movement to fascinate the cat, who sits transfixed about 3 inches from the screen. He's now learnt to recognise the theme tune and comes galloping into the room whenever it starts, which is rather cute. Yesterday, we had a phone call and paused the tv halfway through the opening credits. The cat stared hopefully at the screen for a bit, became dejected, then moved to Rob's arm of the sofa and stared at him HARD until he put the phone down and started it up again. He's going to be devastated when we run out of episodes.

    I used to have a cat which enjoyed watching snooker. He used to look round the side of the TV waiting for the balls to appear if they went off screen.
    I also used to look after a dog which hated Noel Edmonds. She would growl quite nastily at him. Just him, never anyone else. No idea why.

    How many episodes did they make of Moomins? I don't think I've ever seen them, but I loved the books as a kid.

    So did i - this stays true for a little while, then veers off into the usual childrens tv storylines and misses out anything like the squirrel getting murdered by the lady of the cold. I think we're on episode 54 and have left the books behind. I think the earlier eastern European one done with felt figures is closer, we're doing that next.

    I am now an accredited Duke Of Edinburgh's Award expedition assessor.

    I started off as a parent 'helper' when my son did his with school, and enjoyed it so much I decided to carry on helping.
